Beschreibung

Leading railroad historian H. Roger Grant tells the story of the Chicago & North Western Railway from 1848, when the Galena & Chicago Union Railroad ran the first train west from Chicago, to the Union Pacific takeover in 1995. With a lively narrative and 173 illustrations, including historical photographs and maps, he reveals the inner workings of a railroad that once spanned nine states and has long intrigued enthusiasts.

Portrait

H. Roger Grant, Professor of History at Clemson University, is author of 23 books, most of them on railroad history. His earlier company histories cover the Chicago & North Western, the Chicago Great Western, the Erie Lackawanna, and the Wabash railroads.
